It is my pleasure to welcome you to
Dance Without Surrender… Dream Without Borders
I am a religion, gender, and performance scholar whose work is situated at intersections of arts, health, healing, and activism. My interest is in vulnerable bodies, examining performance and performative articulations of identity and belonging, and the influence of cultural and social practices on the health and well-being of individuals, communities, and societies.
Dance Without Surrender points to the cultivation of a life practice with Dance at the center, a mode of being as well as an avenue for artistic, spiritual, political, and cultural articulation.
The tag line Dream Without Borders invites creative cultivation of and engagement in practices of peace and the building of a better world.
